Medicine and first aid is one of IHF's priorities in Kenya. Many of the children, especially those new to the center, are easily prone to illness and disease due to their previously poor living conditions. A small scratch or stomach bug can prove very serious in view of the abundance of typhoid, amoebiasis, malaria and other diseases in the region.

IHF's medical program, in its Nakuru Center, is currently composed of a small cabinet that provides basic first aid needs to the children. The employment of a full-time, in-house nurse has meant that the medicines are well managed and administered by a professional.

IHF hopes that the program can build on these small beginnings to provide a much larger range of medicines and services. The vision consists of a small and free (or low-cost) medical clinic that can be open to the public. To achieve this, IHF is looking at the possibility of cool storage for vaccines, abundance of vitamins, worm-treatment drugs and others. Success of the program would bring medical help to the children of IHF as well as to the vulnerable people in the surrounding community.

We need your support to get this project off the ground. We require funds for construction works to move the clinic into a more appropriate building. We are also looking to urgently expand the range of drugs available, including tetanus shots, antibiotics as well as medical equipment. You can also donate these medicines and equipment yourself by sending parcels to:
